If you are looking for something a little different than the normal ceiling designs, you can always opt for ceiling tiles. With a wide range of tiles on offer you are sure to find one that meets your requirements. The four board categories include acoustical and plastic as well as tin and cork.
Acoustical ceiling tiles are advantageous for rooms that need to be soundproofed. The disadvantage of installing these tiles is that they usually require installation by a professional. Some acoustical tiles also provide insulation which reduces heating costs.
Plastic ceiling tiles have the advantage of being light and affordable. In addition to convenience these tiles can be embossed with a variety of patterns. Repeated patterns can make an attractive feature on your ceiling. These tiles are also easy to install yourself and you can paint them for extra effect.

Cork ceiling tiles are the best choice for environmentally conscious homeowners. As well as being eco-friendly they can be used for insulation. Their fire and water resistance make them a safe option. Cork absorbs sound and therefore helps to sound proof your room.
